We Will Dance is an annual 10-hour fundraising dance marathon, happening on the 27 August 2016 at Bayfront Event Space (next to Marina Bay Sands).
Our mission at We Will Dance is to raise funds for charitable causes in education through dance as a meaningful and engaging event. This year, we are proud to announce that HOME is one of our main beneficiaries for our event!
See you there!
HOME (Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics) is a charitable organisation with Institution of Public Character status. Since 2004, we have been dedicated to improving the welfare and upholding the rights of migrant workers in Singapore.
Migrant workers play a vital role in contributing to Singapore. They take on low-waged jobs as domestic workers or in the construction, marine, manufacturing, service and conservancy sectors. Their work is often dangerous and precarious.
We assist migrant workers who suffer abuse and exploitation. Unpaid salaries, excessive working hours, work injuries, physical and psychological abuse are some of the common problems these workers face. Some of them may also be victims of human trafficking.
We run a shelter for domestic workers, helpdesks for domestic workers and male migrant workers. We also offer legal assistance, health education and vocational training to the workers. In 2015 alone, over 2,000 migrant workers received assistance from us. And about 2,000 domestic workers have sat through our skills training courses.
HOME works with government agencies, civic groups, corporations and other community partners to realise our vision in creating an inclusive society that stands for justice, fairness and equality.
